Huh? Was only about 15h for me. But all the usual suspects, i.e. The Broken Sword, The Monkey Islands, Beneath a Steel Sky and yes, Phoenix Wright have very satisfying length, IMHO.

Favorites: Puzzle Quest, The Quest, Sway, Glyder, Reign of Swords, Flight of the Amazon Queen

Nope, but after playing a few other adventure games (see usual suspects), PW is relatively straightforward for the most part.

My playtime after finishing Broken Sword was around 10 hours, maybe little more. I've spent more time than that on Phoenix Wright, though.

Phoenix Wright, or, if you are interested in a good storyline, check out Dracula - Path Of The Dragon.

Myst will keep you occupied pretty long aswell, but its a damn hard game.

Because many more people have a different opinion than you. I know, it may come as a surprise, but multiple scientific experiments and case studies have shown this to be true.
